THE SCENE: Cool air, clear skies, ready to run
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: done amidst a lot of mumble chatter, wardrobe changes/decisions, and car adjustments. I believe some heard the disclaimer…I believe.
Brief mosey around OF parking lot, SSH x 20 IC, Daisy Pickers x 15 IC because of Pirtle’s concern for his hamstring. OYO stretching while YHC described run route to Sandlot.
Route 1: OF to Sandlot (5k)-> several “speed bump” stops (as so named by Shoestring) along the route to keep the PAX together. Merkins x 10 IC at one speed stop, Squats x 10-11 IC at another, and Mountain Climbers x 10 IC at the last
As we reached the Tobey, Four Eyes mapped out the following for the BC Thang. At this point, MIB was MIA due to an urgent bathroom situation. He was not seen for the first 10 minutes of BC. He did return safely for the second half of BC and was in a fantastic mood. It must have gone well for him.
Catch me if you can: P1 bear crawls. P2 does 10 burpees, then runs (forwards) to catch P1.
Once you both “catch,” Flutter Kick til all in.
Repeat with 20 HRMerkins, then with 20 “Good Mornings.”
Mosey to corner at top of hill near Conex.
Group 1: down hill, do 8-12 pullups, back up hill. Group 2: side shuffle or carioca sideways across field, then 20 overhead claps, then side shuffle/carioca back. Flutter/gas pump til all in.
Flapjack. Repeat til 20 min elapsed.
Once all in, route 2 was a 1.75-2 mile course back to OF. Altar Boy had geometry lessons this morning so he didn’t want to be late so he ran back like Usain Bolt and was an Irish Goodbye by the time we made it to ENDEX. Mirage also left BC early to get back to his car so that he could take his son to his first day of daycare; however, when he arrived at OF he did not have his car key(s). As of this posting, his keys remain lost. The last time I did a backblast where keys were lost, I had to update it based on their prodigal return. Fingers crossed for an upcoming backblast update and the killing of the fatted calf over their safe return.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
12 PAX (no FNGs): Four Eyes, Chioccetti, Toms, MIB, Shoestring, Jailbait, Mirage, Handsy, Pirtle, Bottomless, Teacher’s Pet, Altar Boy
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Prayers for Hezekiah on his first day of daycare and for Mirage and his wife on the changes in their life with his wife going back to work and his son going to daycare for the first time….and him losing his keys.
Great group. The Crucible will be difficult and the PAX were confronted with that reality this AM. Everyone put in work this morning and I think we all made each other better for it. I was surprised by the PAX ability to run distance while staying pretty much together. Speaks a lot of the importance of your brothers being there to push you even when you might want to run slower or stop completely.
- Shoestring bear crawled across the rugby field faster than I think is possible….and then almost threw up.
- MIB took whatever frustration he might of had about the events of the morning out on the bathrooms at Tobey. Poor bathrooms.
- I don’t think the rugby field at Tobey Park is every dry.
- No snakes were harmed during our mosey through the OF towards the Sandlot; however, they would have been if seen. Or we would have run faster and improved our overall time. Either way.
- Handsy left his left over coffee from yesterday at home (smh).
prepare for the crucible; Easily Amused VQ on Wed at OF
